30 Girls XC Teams to Watch this Fall: Los Altos (CC)

It's time to get fired up for cross country! Our traditional XC countdown is back, although it may look a little different this time around - our longtime data analyst Jeff George has moved on, leaving this energizing project to the MileSplit team in CA. Our collective goal is to briefly highlight 30 boys and 30 girls teams that we think will have an impact this fall. We will spotlight one team per gender per day over a 30-day period. Similar to past countdowns, we will provide a cross-sampling of teams from all 10 sections without regard to statewide or even division ranking (those will come later, as will articles previewing each section, and returning athletes to watch). As always, if you catch an error or have updated information for us, email CA state editor Jeffrey Parenti (jeffrey.parenti@flosports.tv) and we'll make the corrections.

Los Altos (CC/Division 2)

As mentioned in the Palo Alto (CC) boys' article, the divisions will look quite different in 2022 than in previous years. The result is teams moving down to divisions that will allow them to compete strongly not just at the league and section levels but at the state level. 

One such team is Los Altos. The Eagles girls cross country team will be led by the best distance runner in the section, senior Lauren Soobrian. After dealing with a few injuries over the past few years, Soobrian had her strongest season to date in the spring to record personal best times of 4:51.13 and 10:17.17. 

Soobrian placed 11th at the State Meet in Division I last November.
